  • Letter: Come paint your future with us?

    The City of Fort Lupton Planning and Building Department does not seem to be embracing the new city slogan.

    The current director of this department is taking a very conservative approach to city code interpretation and denying building permits for what was previously acceptable and “permitted” construction in the city limits.

  • LETTER: Sad to see Payler go


    Disappointment is not a strong enough word to emphasize the feelings about Mark Payler leaving Weld Re-8 Schools. I cannot believe that the Fort Lupton community would allow this to happen. Mr. Payler has made such a strong commitment to the Fort Lupton community, the school district, and most of all, the students of Fort Lupton.

  • LETTER: Vote 'yes' on the wheat referendum

    Dear Editor:

    As a fellow wheat farmer, I am writing to encourage other wheat producers to vote to permanently reapprove the current two-cent per bushel wheat assessment. This increase was approved in 2007, with the provision that wheat farmers would have seven years to evaluate the effectiveness of the increased funding for wheat research, market development and education programs and vote to reapprove in 2014. More than 50 percent of the fully refundable increase from one cent per bushel has been allocated to wheat research.
